    Clayton, are there any good resources out there about herbicide uses, mix rates etc. I know the labels have some of that info but not always easy comprehend. Also, herbicides for pre emerge, post emerge. If you plant corn on corn how best to prevent volunteer corn. Liberty/Roundup rotations are the only option I'm aware of? Others?

    I think some referenie materials for some of us hobby farmers that plant small plots and use 25 gallon sprayers.

    Just some thoughts from a guy that loves to tinker with our duck plot and play around with a sunflower plot every year.
